The ESMO Clinical Research Observatory analyses the administrative and other challenges faced by clinical research
Leveraging the feedback provided by clinical investigators and under complete adherence to the applicable legal regulations, the ESMO Clinical Research Observatory Task Force, established in 2019, works to analyse, provide views and recommendations in order to rationalise and streamline the bureaucracy associated with clinical research.
- Rationalise the bureaucratic burden associated with clinical research:
- Strict adherence to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines and applicable regulations
- Respect for the time and expertise of clinical investigators and research teams
- Avoid interference of protocols with best medical practice:
- Protocols should avoid dictating strict and non-personalised instructions in managing clinically complex situations (to be generally managed by the responsible physician according to best medical practice)
- Foster the generation of data on clinical research procedures.
- Issue general recommendations regarding relevant topics related to clinical research.
- Collaborate with other National and International Associations related to clinical research in order to endorse, revise and improve this initiative.
